The sixth most popular baby boy name in Iowa this year is Maverick. Could it be because a lot of us have "Top Gun" fever? Maverick is the name of Tom Cruise's character in the movie. The sequel to the 80s blockbuster comes out Friday!
Nationally, the name Maverick has been increasing in popularity since 2015. Last year, it was the 14th most popular boy's name in the country.
I guess it's better than Goose, right?
